Real estate investor Scott McGillivray, was stuck with a tough choice on who to invest with, in the latest episode of Buyers Bootcamp.

With both properties seemingly having a similar budget and profit, McGillivray chose to partner up with three brothers, Matt, Jason and Braydon, to flip an abandoned bungalow into a show-stopping abode.

Talk about a transformation, right!? McGillivray and the brothers certainly gave this space a facelift. The crisp white baseboards and casing, and pops of greenery give the home a fresh feel, dismissing the once abandoned ambiance. With gorgeous paintings, sleek furnishings for added luxe, and a soft grey color palette, the entire home now boasts a cozy yet sophisticated vibe. We adore the new kitchen layout, now featuring an island and additional shelving for a fully functional space.

Let’s also not forget about the gorgeous geometric wall treatment, created with our flat stock, adorned by a vibrant wall and built-in storage, adding just the right amount of character:

Overall, this entire home incorporates a variety of contemporary touches, including the basement apartment:

It’s practically unrecognizable compared to the before! That nook looks oh-so-cozy, and we can’t get enough of the pillows’ contrasting patterns.

It’s safe to say McGillivray and the team breathed new life into this once neglected home.
